of the campaign. obama rallies are shouting "four more years, four more years." i heard you. you're shouting "four more days." he said he would lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it's actually 7.9%. that is 9 million short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> dana: all right. that was governor mitt romney in wisconsin earlier today reacting to the jobs report, that came out earlier in morning. the president however sees it differently. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and worst economic crisis since the great depression. today, businesses created 5.5 million new jobs. this morn we learned the company hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> dana: all right. so that is the closing arguments in the last four days, everyone is happy. four days to go. 171,000 jobs created in october. the number, however, for the unemployment rate went from 7.8% to 7.9%. greg, thoughts on this. >> greg: i don't know how you call it a recovery when unemployment goes up. une
, refused to critic. republican party obstructed just about the entire obama agenda for the last four years. the republican party whose leader in the senate -- >> it's an inspiring message to get revenge on people you've never met. >> it is a response to a republican senate leader who said his first priority was defeating barack obama for re-election. his first priority as a leader in the legislative branch the office defeat barack obama. >> so get revenge for something he said four years ago. >> spent four years obstructing the agenda. i know what he said. >> dr. jay thanks for hanging with us on saturday. up next our weekend cycle. both candidates taking the race to iowa and that's our state of the day as "the cycle" rolls on live from democracy plaza. >> you can look at my record. you can see i can bring change. i helped bring it. the difference between us he made promises he couldn't keep. i am making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. >> duking it out in dubuque. at mitt romney in dubuque, iowa where the president will campaign tonight. here at the cycle
a good job, and i am really looking forward to another four years of president obama. host: st. charles, missouri. dale is a democrat a calller. caller: i was born and raised a republican. after voting for presidential elections for the past 30 years as a democrat makes me a democrat. the question i have, that i would like you to address is the single-issue voters that the republicans catered to, we see numerous examples of people from texas in particular that have a belief system that is not based on facts. i am curious why the democratic party has not addressed the single issue voters. i keep asking people. what did you get for the gun issues from george bush, ronald reagan, there administrations of the congress? they cannot tell me. ditto abortion issues. ditto gay rights. there does not appear to be any better relations -- legislation that the federal level but i am aware of or that they are aware of. uhost: we will leave it there and go to victoria, a republican. caller: my thoughts are real quick, we have the right to bear arms number-one. number two, my vote lies solely on obama
that mayor bloomberg had endorsed president obama four years ago. that is a mistake. even political analysts make mistakes occasionally. he did endorse him and said because of the president's views on the climate change, he is the prominent, the most prominent independent probably in the country and the richest in the country. there was one component that bothers the obama campaign in the most dire state when the president was leading by so many points. independence is trending toward romney, and that is why he's going to pennsylvania to try to get independent votes even though pennsylvania democrats outnumber republicans registered voters by over a million people. he feels the election should be, can be won with independence, and that component is going to romney. >> mark, if we drew lines on that today on the trail map, you would actually see barack obama and mitt romney crisscrossing each other throughout the midwest today. you tend to think it that where they go is where their attentions are at this point. so, how in play are wisconsin and ohio right now as far as swinging this one? >> w
'd describe it sounds more like the 2008 obama campaign than this year. 2008, republicans actually would not very competitive. we did not have the resources that we needed because at that point, virginia had not been a swing state. this year we have over 30 offices, we have been very active. mark warner, the democratic senator, remarked when he drove around the state he was not seeing the enthusiasm he saw four years ago and he is seeing romney signs all over the place. when you drive throughout loudoun, a lot of the signs actually i down after the storm, but prior to the storm you would really see an overwhelming number of romney signs here. and also in my part of the district, fairfax county, which even goes inside the beltway, there was just an overwhelming number of romney signs. we hear all the time people -- democrats, idds who say they voted for barack obama four years ago and are not voting for him now -- democrat, independents. they understand what our ground zero for barack obama's tax increasest. axmaggedon -- tax increases. taxmaggedon will be here. most of our high-tech comm
't have four more years like the last 4 years, i know the obama folks are chanting 4 more years, four more years but or chant is this, five more days, five more days is our chant. >> just about an hour ago mitt romney held a rally in roanoke, virginia, romney once again asked supporters to donate to the red cross to help the storm victims but he quickly turned his sites on the election, mocking president obama for suggesting a cabinet level department of business. romney said that would not add jobs on main street. >>> many of you are doing last minute reading up on candidates in the many state and local propositions. ktvu.com can help you with that. go to the news, drop down at the top of the front page and click on politics to read or print the ballot for your county. >>> hundreds of people showed up at the san jose convention center today to take advantage of free help with their mortgage. janine de la vega explains what was being offered. >> reporter: he is a single day in danger of losing his home. he came here hoping to hang on to his. >> i just been through a divorce right now and t
president obama. like i said for christie to win next year, he has to get a fair number of people voting for barack obama this year. >> let me raise this, though, joy. what struck me, as we deal with this presidential race, is that it was announced today that the president is coming to new jersey tomorrow to see some of the devastation and that governor christie was going to accompany him, which is appropriate. but when governor christie was asked about whether or not he was going to tour with governor romney, as some have suggested, by fox new, listen to what he said. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. that's much bigger than presidential politics. and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. identify got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in it is northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics,
years instead of passing the obama care act w regard to even the stimulus, the way he structured that, obviously, we have issues with the structure and fact that much was invested. even with you look at where that money was invested and going to companies like cylindra and others and not needed infrastructure projects he's talking about now. a trillion dollars was spent on that. infrastructure he sees as a problem he said is a significant amount more at that point so you look across the board, it's a matter of priorities and where he was placed those priorities to that point and he didn't make a priority of changing the tone in washington and didn't make a priority of creating jobs at that point when he really could. that's something we need to work to build and move on into the future. >> our last call for gideon moore, chairman of the republican party in mecklenburg county, north carolina, comes from nicki in waverly, georgia, on the line for republicans. go ahead, nicki. >> i want to say i'm for romney this year. i gave obama a chance for years and he's gotten worse. i'm not racist
that four years ago early voting helped obama win the white house. the same thing is being said this year, that a lot of voters will come early and vote before election day. this is our new poll out in ohio. among those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yeste
and today governor romney made the argument over the four years of obama era, the country's confidence and attitude of americans are degraded by ongoing great recession and conflict in washington and inability to find political resolution . mr. romney issing restored confidence. >> three more days . three more days we can get to work rebuilding our country. and our confidence becomes resphored and our conviction is stronger and confidence that we are on a solid path of steady improvement and college graduates coming out of school and getting good jobs and confidence that single moms working two jobs will have a job and better shot. november 6th, tuesday, we come together for a better future and november 7th we will go to work. >> and as we begin to wrap up the live shot, we have rolled live on one of the romney motor cade and off to englewood, california and if the lighting is back for tv perfectionist. the sun is low in the sky and we are taking a lot of corners and we are bathed in sun light and shade and assistants trying to keep the shadows off of us is a great yoeman's effort. >>
) >> narrator: the year is 2000. the place is chicago's south side. for nearly a decade, barack obama had been working to make this neighborhood his home. for the last three years, he'd been a state senator, but he was growing impatient. he had his eye on a congressional seat. >> he wants to do something bigger. he's got a pretty big ego, right. he believes in himself, believes he's bigger than the illinois senate. >> you know, he convinces himself it's a really good idea to take on one of the lions of the black chicago democratic establishment. >> narrator: it was the legendary incumbent congressman and former black panther bobby rush. >> bobby rush has real strong roots in the community. bobby rush was, you know, a panther. then he matured as a congressman into a guy that took that toughness and broadly applied that. so bobby rush had very real strength in the community. >> narrator: even after having lived here for years, obama was vulnerable to a charge bobby rush would surely make: he didn't really know these streets, and he's not really an african-american. >> bobby rush called him an ed
in the community. >> narrator: even after having lived here for years, obama was vulnerable to a charge bobby rush would surely make: he didn't really know these streets, and he's not really an african-american. >> bobby rush called him an educated fool, again trying to sort of cast obama as this overeducated half-white guy from hawaii with this multicultural background. he was not "one of us." >> you can have more degrees than a thermometer, but if you ain't got some power, you ain't got some seniority, if you ain't got what it takes to be a congressman. >> that's always been a subtext of the opposition to him from other black politicians. how dedicated is he to the black struggle? >> despite all our differences, we can live together as one people... >> there's a long article about the race in tchicago reader, the local alternative paper in chicago, where one of obama's opponents, he says, "obama is viewed as the white man in blackface in our community." >> it got bad. it was real bad. a number of black nationalists in the african-american counity, you know, made all sorts of allegations about ba
that the biomimicry folks are chant -- obama folks are chanting four more years, but our chant is five more days. >> reporter: there are still millions of people without power. in new york city, the mayor said it could be until next weekend before some folks in some burrows see their power restored. >>> as the cleanup continues on the east coast, we are getting a better look at how much damage was done by this storm. >> reporter: the damage from sand severy widespread but it appears that -- sandy is very widespread, but it appears that the jersey shore line in particular bore the brunt . this is what a small peninsula looks like, and here it is afterwards. this is what the casino pier in seaside heights, new jersey, looked like before the storm. and here's now. an entire quarter of the pier has been broken off. sheer a bridge to the north, before and after. the storm has washed away the western end of the bridge. there was also a lot of damage and flooding further inland. this is before and now after the storm. the entire wall of this apartment complex has fallen down, and finally this is the en
to help stave american dream. and four years ago people gave barack obama and chance to do just that. they believed him when he said heed turn things around. he talked about hope and change and post partisan politics and all we've gotten for the american people is they're hoping for change. so here we are four years later the american people are still asking the question, where are the jobs. we've got less jobs and we've got less freedom. do we want four more years like that? can we afford four more years like that? hell no, we can't. we need more jobs and we need more freedom. simple as that. listen, tonight is a proud moment for our town but it's also a call to action. if you haven't voted yet, go vote early. don't wait until tuesday, go vote erm. you can knock on doors, you can make phone calls. you can go to my office. we need your help over these next four days if we're going to bring this thing home. ohio is where this closing push begins and it's ohio where this election victory is going to be won. [applause] 23 years ago i was a candidate for congress for the first time. and
. [applause] you know, four years ago candidate obama spoke to the times. he shrinks from it, from characters on sesame street and silly word games to misdirected personal attacks he knows are false. his campaign falls short of the magnitude of these times and the presidency of the last four years have fallen short of the promises of his campaign. four years ago america voted for a post partisan president but they've seen the most partisan of presidents and washington is in gridlock because of it. president obama promised to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, canada, in countries that have made themselves more attractive while obama's policies have made it less attractiv
. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continue the court's conservative shift and threaten abortion rights, search and seizure protections and other individual liberties." this year's presidential endorsement of mitt romney does not mention the supreme court. exactly the same paragraph could have been written in this year's editorial about the supreme court and they just have to substitute the word romney for the word mccain, but "the des moines register" editorial board no longer cares. they don't care about the united state supreme court. the number one reason to vote for president. that's how much they've rewritten their criteria for presidential endorsements in four years. can you imagine what that vigorous debate was like among the five people in "the des moines register" editorial board? you know someone in that room was just sitting there say
" rewrite its endorsement of an obama presidency four years ago into an endorsement of a romney presidency now? by magical thinking. by adopting mitt romney's magical thinking. after saying, quote, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short, the editorial then says that the problem with the economy is the consumers have to feel more confident, and without giving a single shred of evidence as to why consumers would feel more confident with a romney presidency, the editorial board simply believes it will happen. that's it. it will happen like magic. consumers must feel more confident about their own economic futures to begin spending on the products and services that power the economy. a renewed sense of confidence will spark renewed investment by american companies. industry will return to full production, and hiring will begin again." that is the entire case for romney. pure magical thinking that the very sight of mitt romney taking the oath of office will suddenly make consumers run out to best buy and load up on tvs made in japan. "the des moines
to status quo versus change. four years ago broke -- barack obama was the change guy. how does that boil down in the next two weeks? molly? >> they just keep having the argument. gwen: really? oh, good. oh, joy. >> anything new at this stage? that's dangerous. >> i think you see romney focusing more on the personal and likability. he passed the debate test. he proved himself a viable alternative and now it comes down to this likable factor. every pom i've ever seen, obama has this, you may not approve of him but like him. i don't think mitt romney has that. >> i think it comes down to voter enthusiasm and getting your people out. gwen: and sometimes scaring them. look what might happen? >> exactly. >> well, thank you. still counting down. we'll keep chath away on line on the "washington week" webcast extra. you can find than at pbs.org/washingtonweek. before we go tonight, we'd like to send our condolences to the family of former senator, presidential candidate, and humanitarian george mcgovern. he passed away this week at age 90. keep up with daily developments in this too close to gues
whether reproductive rights is a decisive issue for women voters this year. >> it is for the barack obama campaign. they think that's the way they're going to keep their women. suggest that women would vote about who's going to pay for their contraception, that is more of an issue than are my loved ones working, am i working, are my kids going to have an opportunity when they graduate from clege. >> the president especially lately, as of late, he has said, you know, look, he doesn't believe that men should be legislating women's bodies and he supports, uh, he really supports women in that way in making sure that they have what they need. with, you know, the different characters out there, making statements about rape and about abortion and how they feel about it and he basically says, you know, look, we should not be deciding that. >> and the experts' views on swaying undecided women voters? >> this election is about the future, it's about how we move forward. i think it is important for women to really get informed, look at these four people that we're talking about, talking about legisl
elizabeth warren. if it wasn't a presidential year i think brown would be favored but i think warn -- warren is probably going to win in the end. that's because of barack obama. states like nevada be a good example gwen: you say nevada? >> you're right. i'm going to get angry letters now. but i think it's a state where the votes are going to track very similar to the lines of the presidential race. gwen: how about montana? >> you're not seeing the opposite. there isn't a lot of romney coattail effect out of these states. a lot are really either competitive or leaning toward obama. it would not shock me if the race is decided by less than 1,000 votes. that's how tight it is. >> or how many people! [laughter] >> and indiana this week, gloria? that wasn't such a tight race and all of a sudden it is again the >> well, of course. because of remarks made my mourdock, who spoke about rape again and it sort of echoed todd achein, -- aikin, even though it was very different because he is opposed to any exceptions for a abortion. that is a difference from mitt romney's position, we should say. but wha
separates him from the bush years. >> i disagree with the whole recommend takes we're not hearing that obama is playing everything on bush. he says the last administration and blames them and republicans for almoster that is out there. i can't turn on the tv or hear -- without blaming everybody else. i totally disagree with that. for women it is the economy. we have four years of what president obama has put out there. he's been the president, he's been our leader. and today with the new jobs report 7.9% this is not the new normal. we cannot have unemployment. the president told us that after he put in the stimulus we'd down to 5.6% unemployment. where is that? >> correction. the number of jobs exceeded what had been predicted and you are going to have the unemployment rate to tick back up a little bit. every time the economy looks good more people go on -- >> last -- >> 23 million unemployed. >> last word on this topic then on to the ground game. >> one of the greatest issues of our time, right now in our age, mitt romney has come out squarely on the side of greater income and equality stra
this country cannot afford four more years of president obama's policies. >> do you want four more years when earnings are going down? >> no! >> how about four more years of gridlock in waington? >> no! >> there's no question in my view that we really can't have four more years like the last four. i know that the obama folks are chanting four more years, four more years. our chant is this, five more days. five more days. >> five more days until election day. romney was supposed to campaign in virginia sunday. he canceled the events ahead of sandy. president obama will campaign alongside president clinton and dave matthews. the president is back on the campaign trail today. he's on his way to wisconsin as we speak. he'll visit nevada and colorado today. the president took a three-daybreak from campaigning to oversee the government's response to hurricane sandy. part of the presentation will focus on the effort to provide relief of those affected by the massive storm. >> the death toll is climbing four days after sandy made land fall. the storm claimed 75 lives. more than 4.5 million homes and
years of obama no, ma'am i cans and partisanship and the unconstitutional abuse of power by appointing so many decars and making so many expective orders beyond the constitution. and we will put america on a new path to a new day with a new president obama, a new president romney, pardon me. you know, i want to forget that word. healthcare and gas prices are high. small businesses burdened with all the government regulation we have. an $814 stimulus that didn't work. high taxes and deficit spending hurting and killing small business, worse economic problems that america has faced since world war ii, 23 million people looking for full-time jobs, unemployment of 14% of the economy. household economy down 8.2%. 47 million people on food stamps, but that's a failure. but we americans are not quiters, we can turn this ship around and we will turn this ship around. we will put america on a new path to a new day with a new president, mitt romney [applause] you've heard a whole new energy since that first debate, haven't you 1234 you know why? because the people of this country for the first t
have been building jobs those first two years instead of passing the obama care act. with regard to even the stimulus the way he structured that, obviously we have issues with the structure. but if you look at where that money was invested and not going into needed infrastructure projects that he's talking about now. $1 trillion was spent in that and if infrastructure he cease as a problem he could have invested more at that point. if you look across the board it's a matter of priorities and he didn't make a priority of changing the tone in washington or creating jobs at that point when he really could. and that's something that we need to work to move on into the future. host: our last call for chairman of the republican party in mecklenburg north carolina. caller: i want to say that i'm for romney this year. i gave obama a chance four years, and it's gotten worse. i'm not racist. this hasn't got anything to do with parties or race. it's got something to do with country. host: you voted for the president from 2008 you're not in 2012, what is the difference in then and now? calle
is the third thing things will get much better over the next four years. that's a case that president obama has not made that effectively or sometimes at all. the other guy is really bad. we're in the middle here. let us finish the job but there is no overwhelming case, if you elect me again boy things will get much better. brian williams asked him about it on rock center. look at his luke warm answer here. >> would you be prepared to enact truly major changes. >> the plan that i put forward with education with making college and job training accessible to people, to insure that our manufacturing base is right back here in the united states opposed to overseas. the work we've done in increasing oil and gas production and clean energy, putting americans back to work, including veteran veterans rebuilding roads and bridges. those are all designed to make sure we have more rebust future that that was not that good of an answer. hey look, here are these numbers. this is why it's really important. when asked about the next four terms. the first team like the second, only 4% want that. that's a horri
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
in achievements and four years ago, four years ago, candidate obama promise tod do soy much, but he's fallen so very short. i mean, you recall. he promised to be a post partisan president he's been most partisan and dividing and attacking and blaming. he was going to focus on creating jobs and instead he focused on obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. and then he said he would bringlet unemployment rate down to 5.25 percent and we learned on friday 7.9 nine million jobs short of what he promised and unemployment. and unemployment today is higher than when barak obama took office and by the way, he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare. he did not. rather he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. the list goes on. and he said he would low are health prem yups by $2000. and instead went up $3000 a family. and average american family pays $2000 more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. and i mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most impor
by 2.3. and democrat mark wa of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%, actually because the polls are closing, the latest poll, by the ohio newspapers, showing the race a dead heat. and that is certainly what i feel. i also feel like momentum is on our side. i have been at 6 rallies over the last week and at about a dozen centers around the state and energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year and it is interesting to watch. but, we were down 5 to 10 points before the debates and afte
president obama with a late endorsement thursday. he is saying though he found the past four years to be, quote, disappointing, the storm's devastation brought the stakes of tuesday's election, he says, into sharp relief. he then tweeted this, quote. this november vote for a president who will lead on climate change. back to the october jobs status these reports have become the focal point since president obama took office and an important monthly mile marker for judging the state of obama's presidency beyond anything else. there have never been a focus on jobs numbers in a presidency like this one but let's take a look at where we are and where we've been. the newest jobs report shows the unemployment rate at 7.9%. in february, 2009, the president's first full month in office it was 8.3%. in between it's been a rollercoaster ride ever since. in october, 2009 the unemployment rate reached its high point of 10%. last month its lowest point 7.8%. 17 times the unemployment rate went up. 18 times it went down. 9 times it stayed the same. in terms of actual jobs the president has presided ove
we can do, to put the past four years behind us and start building a new future. >> and barack obama looking presidential yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he also got a decent bit of economic news with the jobs report, came in about 46,000 over what the consensus forecast had been. and so he's casting this as we're slowly going in the right direction. we're on the right track. we've been through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied
